TravelCenters of America Releases TruckSmart® Mobile Application Update
App Update Provides New Intuitive Design, Better User Experience For Professional Drivers
WESTLAKE, Ohio, June 20, 2019 – TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters) (Nasdaq: TA), nationwide operator of the TA®, Petro Stopping Centers® and TA Express® travel center network, has launched a new round of updates to its TruckSmart® app. With notable features like entering a shower queue and paying for showers and parking right from the app and the ability to search for a location by amenity, including food, fuel type and truck services needs, TruckSmart makes life easier for professional drivers while on the road.
The new intuitive design helps users easily find what they are looking for and allows them to move effortlessly through the app, quickly getting to the features they need. The simple, secure sign-in and the ability to safely and securely link a credit card to conveniently pay from the app gives users the ability to confidently use TruckSmart knowing their information is protected.
The app now also allows UltraONE members to make account updates and delivers real-time, member-specific information. Not only can members track their points and UltraCredits in the app, they can also see their current month gear level, as well as their gallon balance toward the next gear.
“Our goal was to update the TruckSmart app so it works better, harder and smarter for the driver,” said Barry Richards, President and COO of TravelCenters. “We want the app to be a tool to help drivers save time while they are on the road. Whether its reserving parking, entering the queue for truck service or a shower or accessing real-time location updates, TruckSmart ensures drivers can arrive at a TA, Petro or TA Express location with confidence knowing their time is well spent and they will get the service they need.”
This app update is the first of several in a series of planned updates resulting from driver feedback and aimed at continuing to improve features and add a more significant time management tool for professional drivers.
The app is available through the App Store for Apple phones with iOS and Google Play for Android.
